Eleazar Morales has already achieved the status of a master in wood carving... his true genius of talent is just awe inspiring. Eleazar's work is quite distinctive. He began carving at the young age of 14 and furthered his artistic development by studying the work of his world-famous neighbor Manuel Jimenez. When Manuel Jimenez would discard a woodcarving that did not suite him, Eleazar would study the scraps left behind to further his knowledge of the art of wood carving. Eleazar has certainly come a long way from such a humble beginning, and now his work is shown in galleries around the world. His work is very fine in both the carving detail and the incredible realistic painting done with a very steady and precise hand. We just love the sense of movement in much of his work, and how the painting really reflects the nature of the animal. Eleazar Morales is one of our personal favorites, and we are so excited to be able to share his work with you!

I love this hippo! So creative with a modern flair! Magnificently carved, this hippo has a great sense of motion in the positioning of the legs, and the snout positioned downwards towards the ground. I love the paint job with its evenly distributed fine details that give the feeling of wrinkles in the skin, as well as the large carved snout and nostrils, as well as the carved in eyes and the tiny protruding ears. The hippo is signed by the artist, and there are not removable parts.

Approximate Measurements: 4 1/8" high x 10" long x 3 1/4" deep
